RCMP caught and arrested one man after calls claimed he was lingering around residential property.

On March 22, RCMP first received complaints of the man said to be “creeping” around personal property. When officers arrived to the address, no one was found.

The next day, RCMP received another complaint of a man lingering around private property located near the dump. There, Sgt. Glenn Demaere said officers found a stolen vehicle and arrested a near-by man. Keys to the stolen vehicle were found in the man’s pocket.

Simon Eagle of Hobbema has been charged with possession of stolen property and theft.
